Come here to get some good pan-european food; pasta, etc., but also note the fresh Icelandic faire as well. This is definitely a spot local folks come for a meal out, so don't expect the normal touristy offerings (we were happy to be without them!). The staff are very polite, and the atmosphere is clean and comfortable.

I had the salmon and was very happy... More

We were lucky that we came here early in the evening as, unlike others who came later, we got a table. The staff were really good and recommended dishes. The fish (cod) was excellent but they also recommended the salmon and the combination of ingredients interesting. The pudding with a melting middle was a triumph. The accompanying ice cream looked...

This is such a nice restaurant. I may have had the best hamburger ever here. All of us agreed it was wonderful food. It was busy with local residents and tourist.

Just had one of my best ever burgers (the "Haltu kjafti burger"). Real nice atmosphere at a nice place in a quit little town in Iceland. Complements to the chef!
